Example Program - Number Pyramid maxNumber = 1 currentNumber = 1 while True: while currentNumber < maxNumber: print (currentNumber) currentNumber = currentNumber + 1 maxNumber = maxNumber + 1 currentNumber = 1 What is the output? What is the complexity of this algorithm? Use ‘O’ notation 1 1 2 1 2 3 ... O(n^2)
Example Program - Binary Search def binarySearch(vector, item): first = 0 last = len(vector)-1 found = False while first<=last and not found: midpoint = (first + last)//2 if vector[midpoint] == item: found = True else: if item < vector[midpoint]: last = midpoint-1 else: first = midpoint+1 return found This program performs a binary search on ‘vector’ looking for ‘item’ Returns true if it finds ‘item’, false

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
